Owning a dog can be the best and worst thing to ever happen to a family, depending on who you ask and when you ask them. So before you even think about adopting a puppy, you need to understand what it will take to get them to the point that they’re house trained. Believe it or not, it is much easier than you think if you follow a few simple rules…

One of the more important rules to follow is that you should prepare your house for potty training before you even bring the puppy home. You should have an area set aside for the puppy that is only for them, and is free from anything that the puppy might construe as threatening or uncomfortable.

Next, begin training your dog immediately. As soon as they come home, lay down some ground rules and do not make any exceptions. It is a thousand times harder to break a dog of bad habits than it is to teach them new ones.

So if you are going to allow a dog to do certain things like get on the furniture, then you have to be willing to always allow them on the furniture. Changing the rules later down the road will only confuse the dog and set back your training.

You should be as consistent as possible with the potty breaks. You should always go to the same spot, whether the puppy wants to go there or not. Consistency is exactly what you’re looking for here: the more consistent you are, the faster the training will go.

All your dog needs to know to make you happy:

What a wonderful thing to have: a new puppy at home. They look so lovely, real heartbreakers.However, it is not all sunshine when we bring home a new dog. Dogs need to be trained, else things may happen that will upset the family where they live. How to train the dog in general and what the differences are between the several dog races, is essential to study as soon as possible. The rewards will be great: when a dog is well trained it will be your best friend for many years to come!

When to START with the training?

“Starting puppy training early will lead to a lifetime of good times with your dog”.A simple but universal truth! For instance: Starting the puppy out at a very young age will learn the puppy to accept this activity. Start with short periods of time, say 15 minutes, and work up as your puppy gets older and more familiar with this exercise.

How the Dog’s MIND works (and yes, this is very differently from human minds)

Dogs are naturally good at persistent behavior, and even better if rewarded for it.

Dogs learn quickly through games,just like our children. Try to play with your puppy as often as possible. Unless something was really fun (and a repetitious act like going to the bathroom is not), they are not thinking about what they did in the past. Puppies are well known for “stealing” (being naughty :-) ) anything that they can get their mouths on and then run away with it. Dogs express their feelings thru body language more so than facial expressions. A wagging tail and friendly grin are invitations to approach and perhaps make friends, while a snarl, a fixed stare, stiff, straight legs and tail are warnings to keep your distance.Dogs are, by nature, social animals. Dogs are very smart and will quickly understand that potty belongs outside.Pups must be allowed to play with other puppies and dogs, and to enjoy numerous positive interactions with a wide variety of people, especially children and men.

HOW TO train the dog?

Different owners will have different expectations from a similar breed of dog. For instance, a German Shepherd can make a happy, docile family pet or an aggressive, noisy guard dog. Different breeds require specific instructions as the response is not uniform from say a Poodle and a Terrier. Positive reinforcement is very important and can can come in a number of ways. First, it is a good idea to see what your puppy likes. Positive reinforcement means we are reinforcing something with a positive feeling. In other words, your puppy sits, you reward him. If barking is the problem: Start with someone at the front door knocking or ring the bell. When your puppy barks at the door, make a sound to distract him from the door and look at you.This way you will train the dog not to bark anymore when someone rings or knocks the door. It might take a little while to housetrain, and you may also have some furniture that is slightly chewed. Puppies have a natural inclination to mouth and nip. Though it’s often encouraged by owners who understandably see the behaviour as cute, human restraint is a prerequisite to dog restraint. Puppies investigate mostly with their mouths. Murphy’s Law is also applicable here: a puppy will be most attracted to the things he should least have — electrical cords, your expensive rug, your brand new shoes, and so on.

Train the dog YOURSELF

It is not only fun, but surely it is the best way to make friends for life with your dog. There is many free information available on the internet, but you might be better off to buy one of the many available online training programs. These can be eBooks, Video’s, monthly memberships for permanent training and information, or even a combination of these three. If you order online delivery, you get immediate access to the products you bought, physical delivery takes some days before you can use the products. Puppy potty training is something you need your puppy to “get” .right away. If your puppy doesn’t seem to understand the puppy potty training, you need to change your training program. Puppy potty training is important for the puppy and for you as well. It is an exhilarating feeling when your puppy runs to you with puppy dog eyes and in dog speak says, ?I need to go out,? and you respond.Treats are very effective and a good scratching behind the ears works well too. Using the words, ‘good boy’ is a great way to verbally praise him. Treats are great incentives, but whether you reward with treats is a matter of personal preference. Remember, your puppy wants nothing more then to make you happy.

One of the major common problems: DISOBEDIENCE

There’s a difference between disobedience and incomprehension. If your dog isn’t obeying a command because he doesn’t understand what it is you want him to do, that’s not a behavioral problem at all; it simply means that you need to spend some more time together in training. True disobedience occurs when your dog deliberately does not obey a request or command, although he has full knowledge of what it is that you’re asking him to do (and you know this because he’s performed it reliably on several occasions beforehand). Although this may seem like a relatively minor inconvenience, it’s actually a pretty serious thing – not only can it be dangerous for your dog (for example, if he’s heading towards a busy road and ignores your ‘come’ command), but it’s also detrimental to your relationship with your dog. Disobedience is caused by disrespect. When your dog deliberately does not obey you, he’s saying, “I don’t respect your authority enough to do what you want me to do”. If you allow him to get away with this, you are allowing him to form the habit of passive-aggression. This is not something that can just ignore, it will get worse if not fixed and if you leave it. It’s extremely important that your dog recognizes your authority: that you outrank him in the social hierarchy of the household. The concept of alpha status is one that you need to be familiar with in order to maintain a healthy, functional relationship with your dog. It may sound cruel from a human perspective, but your dog is happier when he knows that someone else is in charge of making all the decisions – including his day-to-day behavior and obedience levels.

A good owner/dog relationship can only be established if the dog understands you are the authority: he must know the chain of command: you first, than him. Your first step in dealing with generalized disobedience is to reestablish your dominance. Here are some tips on doing so: When leaving the house and the car, you must always leave before your dog. This is unmistakable alpha behavior: to a dog, only the alpha leaves first. If you allow him to exit the house or the car ahead of you, you are saying to him, “You’re stronger than me; you should go first because you’re the decision-maker”. Inside doors aren’t so important, but every time you leave the house or the car to go outside, you must make him wait for you to go first, until you release him from the ‘wait’ with a release-word. Make him wait for his food. Your family and you must always eat before him – if it means he has to wait an extra half hour or so for his meal, it won’t hurt him any. When you put his food down for him, make him sit and wait until you release him to eat. Keep his feeding schedule varied, so he’s always aware that you’re in charge of his food – don’t allow him to form expectations of when he should be fed.

When you arrive home, don’t rush straight over to him and shower him in affection. That is not alpha behavior at all.

Conclusion

Dog training is fun, but it also takes time and effort to get the wanted results. There are many ways to train a dog well, with or without the help of professional trainers. The best way to learn how to train a dog yourself is by getting yourself an Online E-Book and/or Online Training Video’s. They can be bought Online, with immediate download, so you can start immediately. Most people think Dog training is easier when they are still puppies, but that doesn’t mean you can’t train older dogs as well. Remember, your puppy wants nothing more then to make you happy.

Something that every new pet owner has to face is how to potty train puppies to go outside. This can be done very easy once a routine is established. Take your puppy out often, young puppies have small bladders and can’t hold it long, usually about an hour per month (ex: 3 months old = 3-4 hrs that puppy can hold it). Don’t allow puppy to have free rein of the house.

Setting up a routine is the easiest part of how to potty train puppies to go outside. Schedule a wake up time and bedtime for puppy. Also, feed your puppy at the same time daily. After these activities, after playtime and anytime puppy is awake, don’t forget to take your puppy outside. Put a leash on your puppy and take outside to the same spot, wait for puppy to find “the spot” and once puppy has pottied, praise and let it be know that what they did makes you happy.

Keeping a close eye on puppy is a great way to prevent accidents.

When an accident does happen, don’t scold your puppy (scolding can cause puppy to fear you) for making a mistake, instead clean it up and keep a closer eye on puppy. If you catch puppy in the act, say “no” and immediately take puppy outside to finish the potty training process.

Another great tip for how to potty train puppies is to learn the signs that puppy needs to potty. If you catch puppy running in circles sniffing the ground, take outside immediately and proceed with the training.

Effective Methods to Potty Train Your Puppy

I can remember it like it was yesterday, it was the day I brought home my first puppy. I was so excited to have this new addition to my family and all I wanted to do is play with him. Within the first hour of having our first family dog, there was a stain on the carpet.

The though never crossed my mind about letting the little puppy outside to go to the bathroom. Watching him pee on the carpet in complete shock made me realize that I needed to teach him where to go to the bathroom.

The problem is I had no idea how to do that! Do I just take him outside until he pees? How do I know when he needs to go to the bathroom? How will he let me know?

So I started my quest to learn how to potty train my new puppy. What I didn’t realize at the time is was as much of an education for me as it was for the puppy. For me it was getting on a regular schedule that helped us both understand what we both needed to do.

Not only did he need to learn to go to potty at certain times, I need to remember to take him out at those times.

One of the biggest secrets I figured out is not punish or yell at him when he did have accidents in the house. When I did get upset and yell at him, it only made him more confused and scared – which set back the training and routine we were building. I just had to bite my tongue and clean up the accidents when they happened.

Once we got on a regular schedule he and I found the spot he liked to go to every time to potty. That made things easier for both of us. We both went to the spot and he started doing his business automatically when we got to “his spot”.

A little animal can make a wonderful addition to your small family and especially if it is a puppy. Maybe it is little in size, but is really a fun to play with. Fun as much it is to play with one of them, it is also very important them to be trained as what would suit you. Dogs are efficient learners but not as efficient as the humans, therefore you may have to toil a little before enjoying with your little pup to the maximum!

Puppy training is just a larger picture of the training that you need to impart to it. The most important training that a puppy must have is to be potty trained. You’ll not like the fact that dogs if not trained properly can poop anywhere when nature calls- after all they are not as civilized as we are! Therefore just like you potty trained your baby, you have to potty train your pup too! It is not like the pup needs to use a bathroom, but you can make sure that as it grows up, it waits patiently until it finds a good place to potty.

Dogs Love to Follow your Instructions

In case you never noticed or knew, dogs just love to follow their master’s instructions.

This is a major advantage that you have over them when training the puppy. Puppies are fast learners and that is another advantage of bringing a puppy home rather than a full grown dog that takes time to adjust to the demands of its new master. A puppy seeks rewards and incentives in the form of treats and even show of love and affection – use this factor to potty train your pup.

But do not make the treat so large that they actually find nature calling again! One problem with treating little pups is also that they can be very greedy and if you do not know how to restrict the amount of treats, you can actually program them to become stubborn who wouldn’t move an inch without the treat! To avoid such a situation, you need to use the treat sparingly. Another important point to be noted when potty training your pup is that making them understand the importance of calling you when they feel pressure in their bowels. It may take time, but the practice is worth it. In case that you’re not present when it feels the pressure, train it to use a pre-assigned place for potty.

Time Management for Dogs – Tuning their Body Clock!

Like humans are programmed to stay awake in the morning and sleep at night, get up in the morning and complete their bathroom formalities, puppies also need to be trained in time management too! It is surprising that an important term such as this has moved out from the ethos of managerial discussions to be applicable to a simple puppy potty training! After all, whether animals or humans, all of need to be trained to be able to live as the society demands of us.

House training your puppy can be frustrating but if done right, your puppy can learn quickly what you want him to do. For more useful puppy house training tips and other dog training secrets. Go to http://www.dogobediencetraining.biz and get a free dog training e-course.

How to Train a Puppy to Stop Chewing

May 13, 2012 by  
Filed under Training Tips For Puppies

It’s not so much THAT they chew, it’s just WHAT they chew, right? I know that I’ve come home at least five times to a house completely mauled and chewed up because of my dog’s chewing problems. You can probably relate. Well, that’s over now because I eventually took initiative and learned how to stop my dog from chewing. I strongly urge you to do the same thing as well!

After learning for myself how to train my dog, I feel that the least I can due is give some information back to the community, so below I’ve organized a few of the main tips that helped me train my puppy to stop chewing.

The first tip, is to make it VERY clear that your stuff, is not his stuff. In fact, let your dog know that EVERYTHING is yours, and you are kindly sharing some of your things with him (*his* toys). If your dog can’t tell the difference between your belongings and his belongings, then he will have no clue what to chew…and he NEEDS to chew!
If you catch your dog in the act of chewing something of yours, this is what you do. First, scold him/her promptly by making a loud noise, and pointing in his/her face. The remove your item, and give him/her a chew toy. When your dog bites down on the chew toy, immediately praise him/her, so that your dog knows that chewing his toy is the right thing to do. Your dog will always relate that toy with being praised for now on!
Another thing that I like to do, is keep a little basket in the corner of my living room full of my dogs toys. My dog and I both know that this is where his toys are kept, and if it’s not in that basket, it’s not his. I also praise him every time he grabs a toy from the basket so he knows he is doing something right (I just wish he could put the toys back!)

Although these tips may be very helpful, this may not fully teach you how to train your dog to stop chewing. As I am not a “teacher”, I’d like to recommend you to some people that are. This is actually where I learned what I know. It’s this product called “Kingdom of Pets”, and they have so much training information that it will make your head hurt! (not literally). I mean, these guys really know everything, and got my crazy little puppy into a well behaved dog. Not only that, but it’s so much cheaper than paying for a personal trainer!

How To Train A Cane Corso Puppy

May 10, 2012 by  
Filed under Training Tips For Puppies

Training any dog has its own set of rules to follow that your dog will respond best too. This will all depend on the genetic makeup of your cane corso puppy, and you will first need to understand the principles of pack mentality.

Pack mentality is the way your cane corso puppy will understand and interact with everything around him. It’s his place in your family unit.  Give him too much respect and you will have a monster on your hands, who will lack discipline and be well above his station.

So what is the best way to raise your cane corso puppy. The first thing to do is sort out his sleeping arrangements. Never let him sleep on your bed. Yes it’s cute to begin with to have your family pet snuggled up on your bed, but this puppy is going to grow into a big dog and he will not understand why he has been suddenly relegated to his own bed.

Another reason goes back to his place in your family unit. On a subconscious level your dog, will feel he is on an even keel with his owner, and you will soon find that your pet, no longer responds to any commands and becomes quite disruptive and troubled. It is vital that your bed is raised above that of your pet.

Toilet training your cane corso puppy should be started early and all members of the family need to show your dog that they are the alpha of the family. Chewing may be a problem of your dog, and it is recommended that you get an obedience trainer should this become a problem.

Cane Corso’s are natural leaders and protectors of the family. They are gentle around children, and need to be involved in family activities. They are quite the social animal and will need to be exercised a lot to avoid boredom. Just leaving your cane corso puppy in the back yard is not considered exercise, and they will need daily walks, jogs in the park, playing games, etc, to keep them fully happy and fit. Remember Cane Corso’s are working dogs, used to being farm dogs, and will need this level of activity. If you don’t have time to exercise and bond with your pet then maybe this is not the breed for you.

Whilst you will not have problems with other dogs and people, socialization is still a much with the cane corso breed. Make sure he is around people and other dogs at an early age.

Unlike other breeds such as the collie, you won’t have excess shedding problems, and your cane corso dog will only need brushing a couple of times a month, and baths a couple of times a year.

Cane Corso’s do also have some unflattering attributes. Excessive drooling can be a problem, as well as snorting, snoring and unfortunately flatulence.

If you have an active lifestyle, looking for a family orientated dog, which is a great protector than the cane corso may be just the dog for

How To Kennel Train Your New Puppy

house training a puppy

It may benefit when training to think of a puppy much like a baby that needs to be raised to grow up properly. It is very important that we teach children to sleep alone and a puppy must learn this also. There are many benefits associated with kennel training a puppy and not only does it promote with appropriate development, but it provides them a safe place in a variety of circumstances.

An important rule in training will be that this is not a place to punish a puppy for bad behavior and it should become a place of safety for them. Required training is necessary, but closing the dog away is not the answer to correcting every bad behavior. This kennel environment should become a place that is both peaceful and restful whenever they need to use it.

Consistency is the key when training and the dog must be able to count on their owner when necessary to learn things quickly. Teaching a younger dog not to eliminate in their bed can only be done if they sleep in them at night. Dogs as a rule do not want to go to the bathroom anywhere that they eat or sleep and this will help them to learn about notifying their owner to eliminate during the night.

The kennel should be furnished with soft blankets suitable for the young dog to create a comfortable sleeping space. The use of towels is also a good idea because these items will be washed frequently in the beginning. Do not place toys and materials in the crate for them to play with when time to go to bed. Telling them goodnight or that it is time to go to sleep each time will reinforce to them the schedule and they will pick it up very quickly.

Training will not give the owner much sleep in the first few months and it may seem there is a baby in the house, but it will improve with time. When the dog indicates discomfort remove them, but take them outside without a lot of attention. In no time at all they will develop the pattern between sleep time and play time.

Consistency and time will pay off on the part of the owner and the young dog will be learning to control their bladder and bowels much more efficiently. In a short time, they may be able to go an entire night without needing to go out if given the chance prior to bed and they can even refrain from soiling their beds. Scolding the dog will only make the situation first and it is important to remember that the responsibility is yours when teaching them to learn control.

Eventually the kennel will become a place that the dog sees as a resting area that is special and it will not be a place of confinement. It can be used to keep them safe during the night and when it is necessary to leave them alone for a couple of hours. Never restrict a puppy to a kennel for more than a couple of hours because it is important that they learn to have their own private space and it becomes a very special place to them all through their lives.

Puppy Obedience Training – The Right and Wrong Ways to Train Your Puppy

May 4, 2012 by  
Filed under Puppy Training Techniques

Puppy obedience training is something that you can either conduct yourself or hire somebody to do, depending on your preference. Remember, training them right away after getting them is critically important.

If you wait to start and then attempt to change their actions later on you will be simply sending mixed signals, and they won’t know what they did wrong. Often times people who first get a dog find their behavior problems cute and they let them slide.

When they try and crack down on them down the road the dog gets confused because they used to be allowed to do those things-why not know?

So what is the right way to do puppy obedience training? Should you hire a professional or attempt to DIY? The truth is, it just isn’t that hard to train your dog when using the right techniques, and doing so yourself can save you some serious cash.

Consistency is key

Keep in mind that the most important part of puppy training is consistency.

Make sure to use the same commands each and every time, because if you don’t your dog will not understand what to do.

For instance, don’t say “come” one time and “heel” the next, as your dog will not know what to do. Sounds obvious, but an important point nonetheless.

Avoid giving treats

Also remember to use some method to show them they’ve done something good. A common method is giving them a treat, but this isn’t very effective because they will often times only obey you because they want the reward.

If you don’t have a treat then they won’t obey. For this reason clicker training is something many people like to do, because instead of giving them food you just click the clicker every time they do something good.

This works because the dog will come to associate the clicker with something good, and pretty soon will only look for that sound as opposed to a treat.

The reason this is more effective than just praising them is that dogs hear you talking all the time, and therefore they won’t necessarily associate you praising them with something good.

However, since they will only hear the clicker when they’ve done something right, they will instantly know it’s a good thing and will start to listen for it after obeying; it basically takes the place of a treat. Sounds a little far-fetched, but using a clicker is very popular for one reason-it works.

Be positive

Be certain to stay positive with your dog. Don’t ever be overly harsh because this rarely produces the results you want and they will come to resent you.

Make sure not to go too long per session, and a couple brief sessions work more effectively than having 1 long one with puppy obedience training. Younger dogs don’t have much of an attention span and keeping it short helps them focus better.
